6th Annual Mini Show: Call to Artists

Thursday, February 1, 2018 - 11:45pm

On February 24, 2018, the Zootown Arts Community Center will celebrate small things with its 6th Annual {mini} Show Benefit at Missoula's historic Wilma Theater.  This gala event will bring together Missoula's creative community to celebrate all things mini, with a mini dessert competition/auction to a mini art exhibit with silent and live auctions, and more! This year, we will also select 3 to 5 MEGA pieces to be auctioned off as well. You may submit to the Mini category, the Mega category or both. This is an important fundraiser for The Zootown Arts Community Center. Your donation supports year round programming and arts education for our community.

You are invited to submit your miniature or mega creation for this Mini Art Show, which will be auctioned the night of the event, through silent auction (for most works) and a live auction for selected pieces.
